Instant Feedback on Your Playing
Instant Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes on your guitar as you progress through an exercise. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands, play the notes in the exercise (or song) on any screen featuring the “ear” icon in the upper right corner, and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. As you reach your goals of getting all notes to change color in each exercise, you’ll discover that reading tablature and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!
Note and Finger Tracker
The Note Tracker and Finger Tracker tools help you see more easily what note you’re playing by displaying the note as music notation and on an animated fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!
Interactive Flash Card Quizzes
After you’ve been prepped with exercises designed to teach you to read tablature and notation, try the interactive flash card quizzes to reinforce what you have learned. Flash Quizzes utilize our Pitch Tracking technology to detect notes played on your acoustic guitar!
Animated Fretboard (with six different skins!)

Music tracking highlights the notes being played on the screen, making it simple to follow along. Includes options for both right- and left-handed views.
